Stars exploding in the air…

Actually, they are fireworks. I really need to pick up some up. Need to get at least some sparklers for Drake. Decided to go up to Tracy to see Dan and family for 4th. Should be good times, since I haven’t seen him and family in a long time. And it will be good to be around family, even if it isn’t my own. But I’ve known Dan and Jen’s families for years now. I guess the key thing is that I won’t be alone.

Fallout of the inventory is starting to come in. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to kick back like I thought I would. I have to help fix UPC corrections. Luckily, my list is only 12 pages long. Yay me. Anyway, I won’t be taking the 3rd off like I wanted too. And I’ll probably be staying late again. The fun just never stops.

Speaking of work, am worried about something else. This guy who worked there got laid off today. On inventory, he was spreading rumors that I was hitting on him and that I had fucked some one-eyed girl that worked there. Neither of them were true, in fact I can barely stand the guy. He’s such a smooth talker and charmer and I had yet to see him do any kind of work. Well, I told Amber about it and I also confronted it. Anyway, he was let go today. I did not threaten to get him fired, although the thought of giving him a threat did cross my mind. However, all I told him was to not mess with me and to stop spreading
rumors about me. Well, he had friends in the General Book dept. and in Loss Control and I’m worried that this will get political. And I’m worried that I’m going to be blamed for his
firing. Office politics are never fun; had to deal with it at Baskin Robbins. That was an ugly
episode that destroyed friendships there. Granted, I’m not buddy-buddy with either department, however I don’t want this to get ugly. Maybe I’m just over-analyzing it too much. Besides, I got enough work on my plate to handle. I guess I will just hold and see what happens. Actually, I should talk to Tim about it; he’s one of the oldest employees at the store and he might be able to find out what people are saying.

What else? Horoscope for today:

Family issues play an important role in your day today, dear Taurus. Speak from your heart and tell your closest of kin how much they really mean to you. In general, you might be feeling a bit reserved with your energy. Don’t feel like you have to make any great strides just now. It is more a time in which you can enjoy what you have worked for. Kick back and reap the rewards of all your hard work.

Which is just a reminder that I need to mail off my dad’s b-day card and call them.
